Editors’ Notes

It may be natural to mention Australia's fabled Go-Betweens when discussing the Aussie band Twerps; the latter's jangly ancestral line clearly leads to the former. But Twerps' family tree branches out to other, more distant relatives that contribute just as much DNA. When Julia McFarlane sings "This Guy" with charming imperfection atop runaway guitar riffs, some may remember fellow Aussies The Cannanes. "Coast to Coast" and "Jam Song" unfurl the dusty, tumbleweedy laziness that conjures the paisley/roots rock of Amerindie pioneers The Long Ryders and Green on Red. If those bands predate you, just know that it's a darn good thing that Twerps are carrying on the psych-pop jangle nurtured by so many bands over the decades (including many of New Zealand's Flying Nun artists). Singer Martin Frawley's plaintive cry is crisp and devoid of au courant reverb flavoring (save for the oddly atmospheric "Grow Old"). Set against Twerps' acoustic guitar jangle and simple, easy percussion, his voice delivers a dulcet hit of pop that falls just outside the genre's typical perimeters. Gentle propulsion and Frawley and McFarlane's paired vocals make "Dreamin" a real highlight.
